Welcome to a new semester!

I would like to greet all students to a new semester, a semester that due to covide-19 will be different from what we are used to. Compare to the spring semester we are now allowed to teach on campus. To decrease the number of students on campus the Faculty has given priority to our new students and courses with practical assignments. I hope that we can work together to create a safe campus environment for all of us. Protect yourself and other, keep your distance, wash your hands, stay home if you feel unwell, etc. To find out more about the safety measures taken for our campus areas go to the corona page for students within the faculty of Science and Technology. The information will be updated regularly. Also keep an eye at the corona page for all students at Uppsala University.

As a teacher, I would like to emphasize the importance of interaction between teachers and students, especially in online teaching. In online teaching, a facial expression on Zoom can tell me if you don’t understand, without you even asking me a question. So the camera image may be more important than you think!

Again, a warm welcome to all of you!
